Magical fairytale forest

We visited an arboretum yesterday. I'm sure all of you understand that it's impossible for me to walk through an arboretum without taking a million pictures. So, here's some of them.

Entering the forest. It is such a magical place! My husband allways laughs at me when I stop and take in the green, just fuel myself with fresh forest air. There is just something about certain types of forest.

The old trees in Mustila are huge, makes you want to look up all the time. These trees are so magnificent they  have some kind of power in them. Just walking amongst them makes one feel a bit stronger.

It's a good thing this tree says "Hug me", so I could do that without looking all crazy. It would have needed ten mes to reach around it, though. (You can see the crazy tree-hugging-picture here.)

Nature is just amazing, isn't it! (Of course, this being an arboretum, nature has had a little help from some very skilled horticulturalists.)

Had to take some macro shots too. I'm slowly becoming a macro fanatic, it's just so cool to be able to create something different than what you can see with naked eye. There is no bokeh in real life but I can make one appear with my camera, that is just so exiting!

Here's some self-made polka dot orbs, for I had no luck with them this time. (Well, there is one orb in the image above...)

Bye bye, magical fairytale forest!


And here's a bonus:

You know how water sometimes gathers on the roof of a tent. My husband just couldn't resist the temptation to go poke a bit, and I couldn't resist taking a picture. I used the paparazzi-mode, aka sport-setting with multi shot action. This is not a very artistic series of images, but how cool doest that water look!

Have a good week, folks! Go take some pictures!

Linking up with ColorMe Weekly #37...

  1. Wow! Lovely shots and macro and water pics are delightful! Nature is such a gift ~ (A Creative Harbor)

  2. I just love these shots.....we don't have anything similar to that in our area so it is lovely to enjoy it through your camera lens.

  3. It looks like you had a wonderful walk judging by all those beautiful photos you took - I love the macro shots and the colour palette is fab - lovely soft hues.

  4. Beautiful series! I love the forest.

  5. OH what a great day and great palette. Forests are just so interesting to photograph.

  6. Thanks UT, Pat and Rosie!
    I would have loved to spend the whole day in the forest, it's too bad we only had a quick walk...
